Tamara Teague Watson, MEd
Tamara Watson works on two autism research grants funded by the Centers for Disease Control as a research clinician, clinician reviewer, and abstractor. Watson's work focuses on preschool and school-age children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs).
SEED (Study to Explore Early Development) assesses preschool-age children with an ASD diagnosis, children with other developmental delays and typically-developing children to identify factors that may impact their development.
ADDM (Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring Network) monitors the prevalence of autism spectrum disorders and other developmental disabilities. The goal of the ADDM Network is to provide comparable, population-based estimates of the prevalence of autism and other developmental disabilities over time.
Watson, a Missouri native, previously worked at Washington University in the St. Louis Medical School, specifically in the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry's Social Developmental Studies Lab.
